Re: Continuum

Any continuous thing is divisible to the point. It is continuous because the biggest integer does not exist. What does "divisible to the point" mean? If you divide a nonzero length in half you get a nonzero length, always. Never a zero-length point. Your claim appears false on its face without furt...

Re: High physics died

How can we (Einstein) claim that matter / antimatter or antimatter / antimatter are (automatically) gravitationally attracted and build on it whole physics? It was Newton who had the profound insight that every mass in the universe attracts ever other mass. Einstein merely provided a more refined m...

paper that discusses the future of Mobile Computing. I have a couple of general comments. Aren't you missing all the marketing aspects? In other words let's take for granted that mobile devices will get smaller and more clever. In fact just today Apple released their new computer glasses and everyo...

How much energy does it take to divide 6 by 2 to get 3?

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

I was looking for a consistent mathematical framework. It is required for any consistent theory that deals with reality. These two statements contradict each other. If you have some consistent mathematical theory, it may or may not correspond to reality. So are you looking for a consistent theory o...

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

The structure is on the surface but not within. You seem to be thinking of infinitesimals as physical rather than abstractly mathematical. In which case, how do your infinitesimals relate to standard physics? Are quarks and electrons and muons and such made up of infinitesimals? How do infinitesima...

We'll have to agree to disagree. You persist in stating a mathematical impossibility. I can't argue with that.

Re: Φπ² = 16

Φπ² = 16 This cannot be, because it implies that phi = 16/pi^2. But the left side is algebraic and the right side is transcendental. Those are mutually exclusive classes of real numbers. I'm not sure why you are unable to comprehend this simple fact. Wolfram alpha gives 15.9693553764781319645891701...

What does irreducible mean? If epsilon is an infinitesimal in the hyperreal numbers, for example, then epsilon/2 is a smaller infinitesimal.

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

This is my understanding of the subject matter: Any mathematical category, like real number, is internally consistent if you can reach from one entity to another one. There are two geometrical entities in real number, point and segment. But you cannot reach a point to a segment, by this I mean that...

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

By fractal/infinitesimal, I mean a geometrical entity made of point which is self-similar. The Mandelbrot set is fractal but not self-similar, as I mentioned. Secondly, why do you write fractal/infinitesimal? They're completely different things. A fractal is a set of points with fractional Hausdorf...
